Unicorn horn wanted!

Postby Old Fogey » Sat Jan 09, 2016 1:32 am



I have a set come in of what appeared to be pretty decent LTD carbs. Taken in by the chrome, and checking just the #1 and #2, that's what I thought I had. But when I strip them down I find I have a #4 775A body. This is not good.

I can see no difference between the bodies, but these number changes usually mean that there are differences, so I have emailed Randakk to see if he knows what. Open to any and all suggestions.

They have the correct jets and someone has done a carefull job in changing the chrome levers into the #4 775. Obviously done quite while ago, and they have been run in that configuration.

Anyway, I'm putting a shout out for a #4 763 body, but really without much hope.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

Got sorted. Would you believe $67 to ship one incomplete carb from the US to the UK! :shock:

I hope it comes wrapped in silk in a jewel-encrusted box! :D

Nostalgia is not what it used to be!
